Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How can I find out if a mover is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Your local city or state’s government website is a great resource if you’re trying to figure out whether a mover is considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic.

For a source of national guidelines, visit the CISA website’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. On this page, you’ll find 16 categories of critical infrastructure sectors. But note that some -- not all --  jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a mover when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a mover, consider making adjustments to accommodate current guidelines. This may involve staying outside while the mover works inside your home or letting the mover handle only parts of the move.

It’s important to follow social distancing guidelines while performing any service work. For example, do not make physical contact with the movers, maintain at least 6 feet of distance between you at all times, and use digital payments instead of cash or a check.

Does a mover need to enter my home?

A mover will likely need to enter your home -- unless you’ve placed all of your belongings outside beforehand. To stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, you might to consider keeping all (or most) of the work outside and/or having at-risk individuals leave the house while the movers work. 

You can minimize exposure by doing a preliminary walk-through by video call instead of in person. Discuss your options with the top movers near you before hiring one.

Do movers offer remote or virtual services?

Movers generally need to be present to do their job. But if you come across a mover’s profile that states they’re offering remote services, you can contact them to see what those services include. 

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a mover during the COVID-19 pandemic?

If you’re trying to set up a consultation or an appointment with a mover during the COVID-19 pandemic, make sure to use digital tools to avoid exposure. When searching for movers online, ask if they’d be willing to do a video chat to assess the size of your move. This will be in place of the typical “walk-through” they perform, and they may be able to give you a price quote. You can also discuss safe strategies for completing the job during your call or video chat.

Can I use digital payments to pay for moving services?

Most local moving companies are likely to accept some form of digital payment. Particularly with the COVID-19 pandemic, more companies are likely to conduct transactions through platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay and more. 

To ensure the mover accepts a platform you can use, you can peruse the mover’s online profile and see what is listed there. You can also ask the mover about payment policies during a consultation call.

What is considered a local move vs. a long-distance move?

Local moves are among the most common moves. Unlike a long-distance move, a local move is typically less than 50 miles and does not cross state lines. Generally, a local move only takes one day, and movers tend to charge by the hour. 

The definition of a long-distance move may vary depending on the moving company. Generally, a long-distance considered to be any move of 400 miles or more. However, some say a long-distance move is over 50-100 miles. 

Local Move

A move under 50 miles

Long-Distance Move

A move over 50-100 miles or over 400 miles; may also be called an “interstate move” or “out-of-state move”

Out-of-State Move

A move that crosses state lines; may also be called an “interstate move” or “long-distance move”

Interstate Move

A move that crosses state lines; may also be called an “out-of-state move” or “long-distance move”

Intrastate Move

A move that begins and ends in the same state, typically beyond 50 miles

Interstate moves require additional legal preparation and will incur additional costs for distance, the amount and weight of your items, the preparation required and various other factors. Moving companies tend to do an initial weighing of the truck, which you should be present for.

A move that crosses state lines is considered an interstate move or an out-of-state move. Contrast this with an intrastate move, which begins and ends in the same state, but is typically above 50 miles. 

To determine whether your move is local or long-distance, contact the best movers in your area.

 

 

How much does it cost for long-distance movers?

Long-distance movers transport your belongings across the country for you. No more renting a trailer and road-tripping from state to state with your entire house hitched to your bumper. Long-distance movers make the move happen so you can fly to your new home, suitcase in hand, and wait for your furniture to arrive. Nationally, the average price range for long-distance movers is $1,490-$2,230. The distance you are moving and the number of cubic feet the movers have to transport will both affect cost. Another factor in long-distance moving costs is whether you choose to pay for an exclusive move or a consolidated move.

In an exclusive move, which is more expensive, your belongings are the only cargo on the moving truck. The movers travel directly to your new house and deliver your belongings on a scheduled day. A consolidated move is more affordable because the movers transport your belongings along with those of other people, saving them time and gas — which means you save money. The downside is that your belongings typically arrive with a two-week delivery window rather than on a prescheduled day. Read reviews to make sure you can trust the company with your possessions to ensure a peaceful moving process.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Contact professional furniture movers near you to get estimates for your move.

How do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move.

Best movers. The crew were very respectful, they are careful with my belongings and they take pride in their work. Morris and Richard were very professional and did things right. For sure I recommend this mover. Dave was very flexible with my budget as well. He accomodated my specific situation and did not quote me a general rate, (local or long distance), but instead, he quoted me a rate depending on my actual distance and the amount of item im moving. He even offered a price match. Hats off to these people who made my move less stressful. Thank you so much.

I have used many different moving companies and they all seem to be similar when it comes to rates, number of movers provided and liability policies. I found these guys from Thumbtack and decided to give them a try since their rate was slightly lower but the most important factor for me was they had 3 movers coming over when all other companies only provided 2 for an 1 bed move. That equates to getting the job done faster so that not only I save money but also save my time! And oh yeah, I was right of course. They finished up my move more than 1 hour earlier than my previous moves and nothing was damaged. Nothing was scratched. They wrapped just about everything with either shrink wraps or blankets real fast. I mean really really fast. These guys are terminators.. They were really good at following my instructions and everything was executed nicely. I bought them a dozen pack of Tecate for job well done on top of my more than usual tip and they gave 2 bottles back to us to enjoy. Super friendly people. Give them a shot on your next move!

They started off on a good foot...they came on time!The team did an excellent job on wrapping my items that they were putting in a storage pod. They were quick and efficient. None off them were using their cell phones nor did they stand around talking as I have experienced with other movers.They only moved my furniture. They did not have any boxes to move which I thought would make the move faster, but it still took them the same amount of time that I was quoted had they needed to move my boxes.Two things that I was not happy about. One, even though I was quoted a price for the full move(including 40 boxes) it ended up costing me an additional 230 dollars which they said was for the "extra" attention to securely wrap everything. Second. I was not happy with how they handled my upright piano.

This was an amazing company to hire. I was in a bind and Greg really helped me out. The guys did a wonderful job moving a heavy sofa for me. They were professional, prompt, kind, quick and performed the job for an affordable amount. I greatly appreciated their work and would highly recommend Byndom LLC Transportation for anyone needing to hire a moving company.

Greg and Will did a great job moving our furniture to a condo. Unfortunately, the narrow hallway would not allow our sofa to be positioned to get thru the door. The guys said they could take it over the 2nd floor balcony. I was not optimistic but they got it in no problem along with a box spring. I was lucky to get same day Sunday service for a minimal upcharge. I’d recommend Byndom for any of your moves.

I've moved five times in the last ten years; my wife has moved eight times, and we both felt this was the best move we've ever had. Apex made the process as easy and pleasant as possible -- Nico, the team leader, called when he said he would and arrived when he said he would. He and his team of Rob and Josh got right to work and were professional, courteous, and delightful the entire 6.5 hours. If they needed instructions on where to place something or for anything at all, you only had to tell them once, and they got it done. Everyone, but Nico in particular, was friendly and warm but wholly professional, and he was terrific in speeding things along without sacrificing one bit of care or attention to detail. The overall price was well below what I expected or probably would have paid had I gone with another mover, and Apex was great at providing an upfront cost and sticking to it. Not only would I recommend Apex to anyone moving, I already have recommended them to two people -- and I would recommend using Thumbtack to get quotes as well. First time ever using either service, and very satisfied!

Initially Kelly responded to my request right away, was very communicative during the whole process. Him and his crew arrived when he said they would and they were able to smoothly and easily load and unload my 816lb laser engraving machine. I was so nervous that it would be difficult to move but they made it look easy. Very pleased with the service and I will definitely be hiring them again when I need to move it next. Thank you Kelly!

A pleasure to work with from beginning to end! They were nicely priced and quick to get to us. There was excellent phone and texting communication throughout the entire process. Randy and Phil moved a 290 lb. adjustable bed frame inside and upstairs for us. They were remarkably quick, cheerful, and friendly. We would certainly hire them again and recommend them to all!

Very pleased with the work Aaron and Chris did for us- we needed some heavy furniture moved from one bedroom to another, and from one bedroom to the garage. He kept us updated on his arrival time all the way until they were at our door. Courteous, professional and diligent team. Would definitely use them again- highly recommend this team.
